'Langton03'Index links to: Lead / Letter
Families covered: Langton of Farnley, Langton of Kilkenny

(1) We presume that various of the Langton families arose from different towns/villages called Langton. However, we have yet to be sure that we have found what connections there are between the different families. Other lines are on Langton01 (which leads into Langton02) and Langton04 (draft).
(2) It is arguable that we should not have launched this page properly' into the database but left it as Draft. However, we felt it worth separating the following from other branches of the family that we are working on and trust that this caveat is enough to ensure that people do not view the following as 'final'. We aim to revisit this page in due course but will need first to find a traditional source that covers this branch of the Langtons.
